Alternativa Bolivariana para las Américas
Ecuador, St. Vincent and the Grenadines and Antigua and Barbuda are to join the ALBA bloc (Bolivarian Alternative for Our America) this week, Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez said Sunday.

Chávez noted that ALBA is continuing to grow, and now nine countries belong to this space for building a new project, which, although it is not the only one, has a stronger and more dynamic core.  

According to previous reports, an extraordinary ALBA summit is scheduled for June 24 in the Venezuelan state of Carabobo, about 130 km west of Caracas, coinciding with the anniversary of the historic 1821 battle that sealed Venezuela’s independence from Spain.  

The bloc, which includes Bolivia, Cuba, Dominica, Honduras, Nicaragua and Venezuela, is based on the concept of cooperation and complementariness, taking into account the asymmetries of member countries.
